The continued evolution of Argentine rugby has seen the establishment of the Fundación Argentina de Rugby (FuAR). Former Puma Richard Handley is to head the organization which is to have twelve representatives including former Pumas captains Agustín Pichot, Hectór Silva and Pedro Sporleder in addition to current captain Agustín Creevy. The entity is made up of players, former players, doctors and directors. It was approved by the UAR last Thursday and is to significantly benefit rugby in the country which in turn will aid the campaign for Argentina to host Rugby World Cup 2023.
The creation of the Fundación Argentina de Rugby (FuAR) was approved by the UAR Board on Thursday, November 27 and its three main objectives are:
* Supporting players with serious injuries (disability) within a field of play, so that they can have a decent quality of life.
* Administer the Solidarity Fund
* Implement prevention and training required bythe neediest clubs in the country with the objective of minimizing the risk of injury.
